One Evening's Journey, 22 January 2013
Author: trainerbt1

A Thousand Cuts introduces us to the world of Lance, a successful horror director throwing a typical over-the-top Hollywood "celebrate me/love me" party. Once Michael O'Keefe shows up as the creepy stalker-type villain Frank, the lights go out, and you feel like you know exactly where this movie is going. But you probably couldn't be further off-base. Once the guests disperse, Michael A. Newcomer masterfully reveals Lance not to be the shallow, one-dimensional Hollywood stereotype he appeared to be, but an intelligent man who fully recognizes what a farce of a world he's living in ... what a fake world ... yet one he's taking advantage of while he can. Unfortunately for Lance, while it is a farce of a world, it's far from fake, and his movies have reached very real points and affected more lives than he ever intended. In seeking eye-for-eye retribution for copycat harm that befell his daughter, Frank terrorizes Lance, ultimately taking both of them on an evening's journey toward recognizing responsibility and realizing what's truly important in life.
